Nature IS Health.
We believe that the first steps towards GREATER change begins on a small scale. Such as mastering lifestyle skills in our own home.
That is why we decided to name this website "OUR GUIDE TO A SUSTAINABLE HOME".
There are a lot of things in this world that may be uncertain, however this website is all about making a positive impact on whoever is around.
Brian and I apply our philosophy: "Nature IS Health", meaning we believe that a mindset rooted in a natural wave of life is what nourishes and thrives long-term.
The ideas we share on this website and through our social media reflect our everyday living. We are not perfect and try not to portray that we are!
We aim to keep things simple: local, homemade and homegrown
We value the mixture of seasons we feel here in Ontario, so therefore try to keep our brand related to season and in tuned with the current environment.
To share and review similar efforts to our own, such as new products and businesses we support because they are forward thinkers.
What does the word sustainable mean to us?
Defined by Merriam-Webster as: "of, relating to, or being a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged".
In our home we believe being sustainable relates to our actions and lifestyle- from where we shop, what we shop for, how we dispose of waste, how much waste we produce and the general attitude to which we approach living in our home & community.
We understand that many common household items, products and actions are ingrained in everyday lifestyle as 'normal', even though they may not be conducive to the long-term health of humanity or the planet.
We aim to create a platform that can serve as a positive influence towards healthy living. We like to politely identify everyday ignorance and reinforce realistic choices. We are sharing with you our experience from an urban dwelling, with an average budget, and while having fun doing so.
It is not about being 'perfect', but rather:
realistic towards cultivating a consistent positive impact
understanding how each of us can make a difference
and then learning how to propel it forward into positively influencing others.
Our product line, blog and social media accounts reflect our everyday actions and our support of an abundant future all around.
